Transgenic salmon

DETECTION OF THE AQUADVANTAGE SALMON – THE FIRST GM ANIMAL APPROVED FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION

The IDENTIFICA transgenic salmon ID service will detect in your sample the transgenic DNA construct used in the AquAdvantage salmon.

In November 2015, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), approved for commercialization the first transgenic animal, the AquAdvantage salmon, created by aquaBounty technologies. The AquAdvantage salmon was also approved for sale in Canada in 2016. This transgenic animal was designed to achieve market size about twice as fast as the native species, with accelerated growth being concentrated in its first year of life.

This GM Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) has a “all-fish” DNA construct containing the promoter and terminator regions of the antifreeze protein (AFP) gene from the ocean pout (Zoarces americanus) linked to the GH coding region (cDNA) from the chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha).
